Healing Philosophy:

My healing philosophy is based on the patient's needs and current understandings. As a naturopathic doctor, I get the opportunity of spending relatively more time listening to our patient's stories, which leads to a healing therapeutic alliance between the practitioner and the patient. My mission is to create a safe place where I can introduce to my patients the most up-to-date clinically relevant facts while respecting (and taking into account) their culture, background and upbringing, gender identity, ethnicity, and personal beliefs. I want to speak their language and meet them where they are at. #DOCERE
